Great episode with Jakk!

Wasn’t sure whether I was going to learn anything new since Jakk was also on the mtv podcast but loved learning more about his personal life, the tangents on what the players could say in the confessionals and emo era, and additional insights into his game play and dynamic with Jay. Great questions too from Scott and D. Nice job!

Love ct

The people they have on this podcast is great HOWEVER THE SOUND QUALITY IS HORRIBLE

Derrick drags it down to 2 stars

Derrick is not good at talking. He doesn’t have the skills required to host a podcast. Scott does but Derrick is so hard to listen to that I can’t enjoy any of the interviews.
